Members Who Don't Post

OK, when looking at the list of active users I see names that I have never seen posting. They have been here several years and 0 or under 10 posts. They log in and private message.

Why? With whom are they private messaging? Why join a forum just to use the private messaging feature?

Some forums don't allow the privilege of private messaging until a certain number of posts have been accumulated.

Click on Talk About Marriage or forums and look at the bottom of the page. It gives number of active members and guests and lists the names of the active members. Click on their name for stats and some will show what they are engaged in.

Maybe they are just using this place as a private messaging service. Easy to keep hidden! No app, not accessible unless you have the username and password.

It's good to know what you can know.

About a year there was poster on here who was very inflammatory. I really believed that he was a Russian troll.

Re: Members Who Don't Post

I’m not sure I qualify for private messaging yet but I’m not on here for that. I’ve made my original post and a few responses, but I do read a lot of the posts. Maybe there’s more people like me, on here every day to learn by reading the posts. I can see the need for private messaging for more personal responses.
I do find it interesting that many EA and PA posts started with private messaging on game sites. Hope that’s not going on here, of all places.

I reading daily and when I feel my 2 cents are relative I do toss them into the pot; often what I would say has already been posted.

Re: Members Who Don't Post

Do you know for sure they are using PMs?

I'm a member of a few boards where I don't post. On some of those I became a member so I could use some of their advanced features which are only for members, such as New Posts, subscriptions, advanced search, etc.

I could also see not posting if someone is more passive or just here for casual purposes. Posting often means there will be some back and forth, and not everyone is looking for that.

The site tells you they are engaged in private messaging at the time.

Yeah, I get that some people just enjoy being lurkers and not contributors.

Why don't they just use their e-mail or text on their phone (if they have a smart phone)?

Who would want to PM with someone who has never made a single post? Maybe they are using the site as a rendezvous site. Don't know. Just find it puzzling.
